Be a Disciplined Athlete

Last Sunday, we talked about the importance of being discipline to an athlete and how it separates an elite athlete in comparison to a regular athlete. The elites of any sport goes through an incredible amount of training in order to keep themselves at the top of their respective sport. In our spiritual life, God lets us go through trials in life so that one day, we can be the man/woman God made us to be for His kingdom.

"Do you not know that in a race all runners run, but only olne gets the prize? Run in such a way to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore, I do not run like somoene running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air."
